His experience includes advising clients with respect to environmental due diligence during real estate transactions, working with property owners and environmental consultants on complex New York State Brownfield Cleanup Program projects, guiding developers through renewable energy permitting, and assisting clients with building-systems environmental issues such as lead-based paint and water treatment systems.
